The City of Calgary teams up with Golf Town for Girl’s Golf Camp as it builds on its efforts to grow the game

In partnership with Golf Town, the free two-day camp will help grow the game of golf for young girls through hands-on training, guest appearances, and gear

The City of Calgary is proud to announce an upcoming Come Out and Play Girl’s Golf Camp, in partnership with Golf Town, Canada’s largest golf retailer. The camp, which is the latest initiative in Golf Town’s efforts to grow the game, will provide participants with a memorable and engaging experience to help develop a love for the sport.

The camp, which will be a two-day event on July 27 and 28, will be hosted at the McCall Lake Golf Course in Calgary, and will see approximately 40 girls, aged 7-14, attend. There is no registration fee for the camp, and participants will be provided with complimentary equipment from Golf Town, which includes a junior set of Cobra Golf clubs to drive their golf experience forward.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer a fantastic group of girls from Calgary the opportunity to get unique and hands-on access to the game that we love,” said Chad McKinnon, President at Golf Town. “For years, we’ve been committed to making golf in Canada more inclusive and welcoming, and we’re confident that this camp, in partnership with The City of Calgary, will inspire more young girls to get into the game of golf.”

The Come Out and Play Girl’s Golf Camp will also offer participants the opportunity to interact with golf experts including Golf Town ambassador Paul Horton and Golf Town Assistant Manager/PGA of Canada Class "A" Professional John McKiernan, who will provide world class golf lessons to participants. Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk, a Golf Town Ambassador and 8-time Canadian Long Drive National Champion, will also host a clinic for the participating girls, sharing tips, insights, and offering her own experience as a foundation to help instill the same joy for the game of golf that has brought her so much success.

“As a proud Golf Town Ambassador, I’ve seen firsthand how we’ve been able to grow the game for women since 2016 when we launched our virtual clinics, in-person events and more,” said Lisa “Longball” Vlooswyk. “This camp is another great opportunity to show support for young female golfers and continue our commitment to growing the game.”

Additionally, PGA of Canada Professionals Kim Valleau and Chris Horton will be in attendance to offer participating girls expert advice and support as they begin their golf journey.

“Joining forces with Golf Town for the Come Out and Play Girl’s Golf Camp is an extremely exciting and rewarding event for the city,” said Todd Moon, Business Development Coordinator for The City of Calgary. “Providing young girls with a space to connect with golf professionals and each other is so important, and we’re pleased to be able to offer them that opportunity.”
